When on an airplane, Anne Burrell looks forward to a bloody mary and taking a nap.

"Every flight, when the engine starts, I go to sleep and then I hear the drink cart rolling around and I'm like... 'two bloody marys and more of a nap!'" said Burrell.

Burrell also names Mr. and Mrs. T Bloody Mary mix as her favorite kind of airplane blood mary.

"Mr. and Mrs. T Bloody Mary Mix. You look at it and it's like 5,000 milligrams of sodium and you get off the plane and you're like, ‘Why do my fingers feel fat?’ Because it's a glass of vodka and salt," said Burrell.
